Lithuania found a way out of the situation with the repair of the Soviet Mi-8 in service with the Air Force

Lithuania found a way out in the situation with the repair of Soviet Mi-8 helicopters in service with the army. The country's Defense Ministry has signed a contract for the repair of equipment with Slovakia, which will purchase spare parts from Russia. This was reported by the press service of the Lithuanian military department.


Lithuania signed a contract for the repair of four Mi-8 helicopters of the country's Air Force with a Slovak state company, which, in turn, signed a contract for the supply of components for the Mi-8 of the Lithuanian Air Force with Russian Rostec. Thus, Vilnius will receive repaired helicopters with licensed parts, while helicopters will not be repaired in Russia.

The purchase of services was carried out through the announced negotiations. Three suppliers participated in them. The contract was signed with the Slovak company Letecke opravovne Trencin as Its cost is 6 euros

- stated in the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense.

According to the chairman of the National Security and Defense Committee of the Lithuanian Seimas Laurynas Kasciunas, the country's authorities consider it permissible to purchase components from Russia, but not to repair helicopters.

Buying spare parts is a controlled process. But if our helicopters performing NATO missions are delivered to Russia, this will have to be taken more seriously

- he said.

According to Sigitas Djekunskas, the head of the Defense Resources Agency under the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, the Lithuanian Air Force requires at least four helicopters to perform the main tasks.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania said that Soviet helicopters are already old, it is very difficult to maintain them, since the resource is almost depleted, and spare parts are very difficult to obtain, since they are produced in Russia.

In July, the United States approved the delivery of six new American UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters to Lithuania to replace the Soviet Mi-8. Helicopters will begin arriving no earlier than 2024.

      After a thousand years, this little fact alone will be enough for a historian (a real historian, not a clown from the institute of delusional "national" memory) to understand that the USSR was a real superpower, and Lithuania dragged out the miserable existence of the Anglo-Saxon strip ... laughing

          In this case, everything is done correctly.

          1. Slovaks are not intermediaries, but executors of works.
          You, sir: you repair your car not at the manufacturer's plant, but in one or another workshop.
          Spare parts Slovaks will put "native" - ​​Russian.

          2. As a NATO member, Lithuanians repair military equipment from a NATO member and do not want to give equipment to a potential enemy for repair.
          What do you say if the repair of our military equipment is carried out in France or in the USA?

          3. Considering the facts above "business in Lithuanian" is the right decision. And it's not a fact that repair work in Russia will be cheaper than in Slovakia.

          There is no reason to doubt the competence of Slovaks.

            It is also true that Ukraine does not buy Russian gas. It buys "Slovakian" and dearly. There are enough patriotic idiots in the world. Have you joined their ranks?

              I don't want to join your ranks. Enjoy your ranks yourself.

              Buying gas like any other product and performing work are completely different matters.
              In your ranks, apparently they do not understand this.

              But these are your problems.

              And think at your leisure about the fact that Ukraine has decided to refuse supplies for our military-industrial complex.
              Otherwise, we would still buy from them engines, turbines, and so on.

              But in your ranks they are ready to freeze their ears to the evil of mom.

              Lithuania has acted wisely for centuries, but people like you are not satisfied with the very fact of the existence of the world outside of Russia.
              It's stupid, but pseudo-patriots are a mother of stupidity.

            laughing Well, yes .. the Slovaks will want to save money and the same transportation of spare parts will not be more expensive .. in any case, Rostec is purple: 3-4 million euros of this amount will go to Russia anyway.

            I agree with you, in confirmation I will note that they did not begin to repair in Ukraine, unlike Afghanistan.

        After a thousand years, this little fact alone will be enough for a historian (a real historian, not a clown from the institute of delusional "national" memory) to understand that the USSR was a real superpower, and Lithuania dragged out the miserable existence of the Anglo-Saxon strip ...

        I think that they will also remember how the USSR handed over the Russians in Lithuania worse than the biblical Judas. How the first channel was shitting on the Russians, and the bumpy Yakovlev limped around the cathedral. I have witnessed all this heinous betrayal. So take a look in the mirror first. I am an opponent of democracy, both in Lithuania and in Russia, because this is the other side of the coin, sorry for the dictatorship.
        PS And whose gasket is Russia? Thieves, along with the money, go to England in droves. Russian gold is also sent there. The Russian Foreign Ministry is bleating like a lamb. ... ... Here is an oil painting.

          Russia is the homeland of one hundred and fifty million people. My fellow citizens.
          Only the last scum can call my country a gasket.

          There were always enough scum in the leadership.
          All around people. Vices are inherent in us.
          Thinking that there will be pure creatures in the leadership is foolish.

          Every month, officials emerge into the light of day, imagining themselves to be gods who are surrounded, according to their words, by "rogue".

          We remember that substance that floats up and does not sink.

          But because of the scum in the leadership, only a stupid person or one who hates Russians can call the country a gasket.

          In one word, a ghoul.

The country's Defense Ministry has signed a contract for the repair of equipment with Slovakia, which will purchase spare parts from Russia lol And Russia will revise the agreement with Slovakia regarding the re-export of spare parts and generally anything and CHO. What's on the mind of a fool is a mystery, what's on the tongue is a puzzle.

    Well, I hope such a cunning price tag was raised for details? And then somehow it is not fair, they raise prices for everything to their own, and discounts to someone else's clever ones, they are like partners, but the fact that we pay even more so we are apparently not partners in their eyes, but terpily.

    And the spare parts will immediately become European and it doesn't matter that spare parts are not produced in this country. It's like European gas in Ukraine. Seeming cunning may one day come out sideways.

    And it is not possible to sell spare parts for military equipment without reference to a specific product number and the country of its operation. Or are Russian sanctions just words?
    True, our traders will hand over their mother for profits ...

      It was not for this that the Soviet people created this technique so that it could fly under NATO. Don't supply them with parts, period. Let them buy other equipment, retrain pilots, create new infrastructure. In a word, they plunge themselves and their owners into new and very rather big expenses. But, as you noticed, the capitalists from the aviation industry do not care much about this.

      Namely, "Rostec" is a commercial organization, the purpose of which (like any other commercial organization) is to make a profit ....
      I have not heard that the Russian Federation imposed a ban on the supply of spare parts in relation to Lithuania ...

      under the USSR, Kaunas repair base repaired MI8, and it was the most representative repair base throughout the Union, in terms of quality and culture of production, it was they who won the right to repair MI26 at one time, but gave it to us in Konotop, since MI26 did not fit into the shop
